The actual floating restaurant was nice and food was delicious. This was meant to be scenic tour, however it was dark and there was nothing interesting to see upstream. As a restaurant it was great, but it failed to be a scenic ride.

Loved the scenery, food and service. Second time on Melbourne River Cruise and enjoyed it even more than first!!! Diappointed with ticketing service as it is out of Australia and charged considerable O/S bank fees .

Amazing food and wonderful staff. Great night had by all

All things wine, dine, and fine

Swaying gently on the Yarra River awaits the mighty vessel Spirit of Melbourne, at Southbank Promenade, to welcome you onboard. You'll spend the next 3 evening hours eating, drinking, and making merry against an almost poetic backdrop of the Melbourne cityscape. It's not going to be easy to focus on the stunning views of the Royal Botanical Gardens or Riverside Park when there's so much delicious food in front of you.

Spanning 4 courses, each dish is meticulously prepared by top chefs using locally sourced high-quality ingredients. From non-vegetarian delicacies like lamb kofta and barramundi to vegetarian delights including ratatouille filo parcel, there's something for everyone.

Stellar Melbourne skyline

As you eat, don't forget to pause and take a look through the clear glass windows to admire just how pretty Melbourne is. Meanwhile, treat yourself to fine wines, red, white, and sparkling, beer, spirits, orange juice, and soft beverages. Indulge in a yummy cheese platter and adorable mini desserts before you polish it all off with some tea, coffee, port, or liqueur.
